If you end up with link local IP(v4) adresses in the range 169.x.x.x,
then your device fails to contact the DHCP server. A common cause is to
mistype ones WEP key. Unfortunately I'm not at all sure this is the
cause of your problem. What kind of WLAN networks are you connecting to?
Open/WEP/WPA encrypted? How is the "logging in" supposed to be done in
the hotspot?
